    “The rules are very simple. Each challenge consists of a colour palette and select products. Stick to the colour palette and use at least two of the products listed in a challenge to enter.”

    Inspiration from Finn’s Design Team:

    “I am in love in changing seasons… each new season brings so much excitement, energy and new ideas to me. And I am so excited for the Autumn time which is greeting us with all its amazing warm colors. This was my first thought when seeing this month’s Art Recipe colors – cobalt, brown and shades of gold. I decided to create a beautiful Autumn treasure house using white crackle paste, Art Alchemy Metallique paints in shades of brown and blue and quite lots of different Metal embellishments.” ~ Aleksandra

    This will be a very special piece in our home which will decorate our shelves and bring warmth to our home all until the winter time comes.

    “Hello, mixed media people!
    Today’s project is inspired by Art Recipe by Finnabair;)) There are a lot of metal embellishments, metallic paint, crackle texture paste, art stones and all of them in wonderful brown color with delicate cobalt shades.” ~ Kasia S.

    I applied texture paste through Finnabair stencil to create a pattern at the background. I did the same on the HDF heart. Then at several points I added a bit of white, crackle paste. Later I started to glue down all individual elements. You can see also natural wooden sticks. They stick perfectly with Heavy Body Gel.

    Then I added a base of heart and beautiful metal accessories that I like to use so much in my creative projects. You can find all links below. I added also several cogs and swirls from HDF material. To comfortably colour everything, I covered all individual elements with Clear Gesso. It is colorless and gives matte surface. That way you can get completely different look of objects that initially looked completely different. With the help of Heavy Body Gel I glued everything together, focusing on the main point, which is the heart.

    For colouring, I used one of my favorite paints – brown liquid acrylic paint. I diluted it with water, thanks to which the color gently melted on patterns from the stencil and some details of my project. In several places I added some metallic paint, art stones in two sizes, a bit of gold wax, a few splashes of white Impasto paint and black gesso mixed with water. The whole looks like this;))

    “Hello, mixed media friends! Our October Art Recipe immediately fascinated me with these colors – cobalt, brown and shade of gold. What a beautiful combination! At the end of October, as we all know there will be a Halloween. Since our son grown up we don’t celebrate it anymore. But in elder times we were imagining costumes and have meeting with our friends to celebrate this day. And all that lead me to make this project. I made a decision to create “Old House with Ghosts”.” ~ Anastasia K.

    First of all, I came up with a vision of my project. And it’s my favorite shape of creation – the house. I made the base from cardstock and paper. And then I colored up base by liquid acrylic paints and metallique paints. I used scrapbooking paper and cutted elements from this paper. To get brown I choose liquid acrylic paint Burnt Umbra and Rustic Brown from Metallique series. Also I used texture paste Brown Rust. I like experiment and to get Cobalt color I mixed liquid acrylic paint Ultramarine and metallique acrylic paint Red Vine. And it worked! I have got Cobalt color!

    For some “rooms” I used  Finnabair Tissue Paper – Carte Postale, and then applied liquid acrylic for colored up it. I “decorate” rooms of cut elements from Art Daily – Vintage Photobooth. As a “shades of gold” I used Metallique wax Vintage gold and acrylic paint Ancient Coin.

    I couldn’t add volumetric elements inside my project, so I used them on the front side of my project. It’s metallique embellishments and chipboard, and cute paper clip from Art Daily set of clips – Nostalgia. Also I used Mini art stones and micro beads to get a some texture.
